1931 Jowett 7/17HP 10cwt Truck 

The vendor has kindly supplied the following information:

  • A 7HP 907.2cc truck - originally costing £150!
  • 16 of this vehicle were produced out of a total production line of 1706 vehicles in 1931
  • The known history of this lorry - purchased second hand in 1935 for £12 and owned by Belton's of Wilton Park County Durham - it was used in connection with a general store business for delivering fruit and veg
  • It remained in use by Belton's until 1949 when it was sold to a milkman, having been fitted with a new lorry bed. The trail goes cold until the late 1970's when it was found under a hedge in well-rotted condition
  • A full sympathetic restoration was undertaken to it's original specification and the vehicle painted in the Belton's livery to remain as original as possible after locating a picture of her in her prime
  • No further restoration work has been carried out since the late 1970's and I have owned her since 2015
  • Her name is "Fusty"
